Commonly known as Mountain Avens, Holtasoley ( Dryas Octopetala ) can be found growing in the gravelly mountain slopes in all regions of Iceland. Despite only be named the national flower in 2004, Holtasoley has an interesting history with the nation. Once used as a medicinal herb to cure inflammation, as well as a substitute for tobacco and tea, the most surprising thing about this flower is perhaps it’s power to attract money from the earth. According to the local folklore, if one were to steal money from a new widow while she’s attending mass and then bury the loot under Holtsoley, supposedly, it will double in value. [ Note: In no way is this an endorsement for robbing poor widows. ]
